There Is A Light

Great Lake Swimmers on MTV Live

Great Lake Swimmers were on MTV Live yesterday. GLS' Tony Dekker talked about the new album "Ongiara" then him and the band performed new songs "Your Rocky Spine", "I Am A Part Of A Large Family" and "There Is A Light". (Sorry, I think only Canadian residents will be able to view this.) I found the first 2 songs more 'uptempo' than I'm used to hearing GLS. The third song was more how I like GLS - hushed, tranquil, and atmospheric. I'm looking forward to seeing Tony and co. when they come to Church of the Redeemer in Toronto on April 14[two shows scheduled, one at 6 pm and the second at 9 pm - get tickets while they're still available]. Check GLS' MySpace or band website for more tour dates.

The new GLS album, entitled "Ongiara", will be released on March 27th 2007 in Canada (two weeks later in Europe, and in May in the U.S.).

Tony spoke to The Star Phoenix about the experience of recording the new album in " abandoned grain silo on the outskirts of Port Colborne, Ont., near Lake Erie in the rural area where he spent his youth."[via Largehearted Boy] Hamilton, ON's View Magazine also spoke to Tony.(Hope I can make it to GLS' show in Hamilton at Pepper Jack's tomorrow.)
